Veni, vidi, vici.
Yup, same old LeBron James.
He came to Chicago, he saw a city he liked, as he would concede afterward to reporters, and he conquered a Bulls team once again without Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah and Luol Deng, though this time by a more pedestrian 92-85.
Hail, LeBron, which a sellout crowd of Bulls fans mostly did …

I remember one time asking the late Cotton Fitzsimmons, the garrulous and popular longtime coach of the Suns, Hawks, Spurs and Kings, what he’d do when one of his teams had one of those nights like the Bulls did Saturday in losing 100-90 to the Indiana Pacers.
When from the opening tip they had virtually no chance of winning the …

Now that Derrick Rose is an All-Star one question is whether it will hurt the Bulls the rest of the season.
Not that everyone among the Bulls and their fans isn’t thrilled and happy for Rose. But it suddenly becomes a long weekend toward the end of a long season and just before the traditional playoff strerch run.
And for …

It turns out that may have been the problem all season for the Bulls with the questions about Vinny Del Negro’s coaching status, Tyrus Thomas’ commitment, John Salmons’ position, Luol’s Deng’s role, the playing rotation, minutes, offense and depth.
The Bulls just needed to make shots.
Why didn’t someone think of that?
And, oh did they make them Monday in …

My adventure in CHINA these past six months has been thrilling, exciting, pleasurable, glamorous, breathtaking, educational, at times overwhelming, and most of all an unforgettable journey of a lifetime. The China portion of “Dance Passion” had ended, but the FINAL SIX DANCERS Chosen were coming to the UNITED STATES, and I wanted to make every minute of their time in …

That was historic stuff Monday night at the United Center, the kind of stuff only long suffering Chicago fans can understand. Like the ’69 or ’05 Cubs. Like No. 1 DePaul in the NCAA’s. Don’t get anyone started on the Bears. The Black Sox?
No, the Bulls didn’t throw Monday’s 102-98 loss to the Sacramento Kings, though you could make …

No question. No doubt. That 101-98 Bulls overtime victory Saturday over the Atlanta Hawks was the best win of the season. Better than over an aging Spurs team on a back to back to open the season, better than even that road victory over the Cavaliers trying to figure out what to do with Shaquille O’Neal and Zydrunas Ilgauskas.

The last time I remember the Bulls losing like this at home–110-78 to Toronto in a game that wasn’t that close–was also on a Saturday night, just about two years ago when the Houston Rockets dominated an indifferent Bulls team. Two days later coach Scott Skiles was fired.
I don’t expect Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro to be fired, especially …

Back to Beijing for the FINALS!!!
REGIONALS, SEMIFINALS, and now FINALS. Just imagine the process of narrowing the field of hundreds of contestants (during the last 6 months) all over CHINA (grassroots – small towns – large cities ) to only SIX? What an experience: Not only for Me, but for all the Contestants, Sponsors, Media, and NBA. This “Dance …

The First Round of Semifinals was very exciting, and now it is Round Two. Such pressure. This process of narrowing the number of dancers was harder and harder, since I have become somewhat attached to these contestants. Their readiness for this competition is exceptional. This Round Two Adventure began in Guangzhou.
